      EVENT DETAILS
      Revising Your Novel: One-Day Workshop

      Have you got a big chunk of novel manuscript that's not making any progress? If you find yourself stuck, bring your work along to Skriva's 'plot hospital'. You'll send a synopsis of your plot to the tutor, along with a list of concerns or questions you have. During the workshop, you will revisit your main plot and alter it to fit new developments, while cutting back other parts you no longer need. You'll learn how to make your subplots work to support the central storyline, and think up different possibilities for the novel's ending. We can also help you to tap back in to the initial drive you had to get this novel written. Lastly, you will  learn about different potential outlets for your finished novel, and you'll leave with some advice on approaching agents and publishers. This is a 1-day workshop, running from 10am to 4pm, with a one hour break for lunch (we can recommend nearby cafes). Please bring whatever you like to write on, be it laptop or notepad and pen. Your tutor is Sophie Cooke, author of novels 'The Glass House' (shortlisted for the Saltire First Book of the Year Award) and 'Under The Mountain', published by Random House.
